Sensing Probe Safeguarding Device
Whenever an operator initiates a machine cycle, typically through an electric foot switch, Rockford Systems’ Detect-A-Finger drop-probe device sensing probe automatically is released, ensuring that safeguarding cannot be deactivated or overlooked by the operator. If the probe detects anything more than the material thickness, it halts the machine from cycling. If an operator’s fingers or hands have not entered the point-of-operation area, the sensing probe will drop into its preset position, and the Detect-A-Finger’s control unit will allow the machine to cycle to maintain ongoing machine productivity and performance.
